About this book

The special natural conditions in Iceland as well as high level technology, were the basis for multidisciplinary and multinational cooperation for studying crustal processes, especially processes ahead of large earthquakes. This work leads to new innovative results and real time warnings which are described in the book. The results obtained in Iceland are of significance for earthquake prediction research worldwide.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is really a review of earthquake research in Iceland … focusing on the issue of earthquake prediction in the specific seismic region called the South Iceland Seismic Zone (SISZ), located in the South Iceland lowland (SIL). … the book presents perhaps the best study of bookshelf tectonics ever performed. It is also a uniquely detailed study of seismicity of a ridge region, namely the SISZ, based on both historical and instrumental observations.” (Pawel Wiejacz, Pure and Applied Geophysics, November, 2012)
